When you think of Feeding Westchester, you may think of truckloads of donations, secured by major partnerships with corporations and foundations. So it may surprise you to learn that old-fashioned community food drives remain foundational to our work.
Those bags of canned food at the school or office actually provide us with much-needed essentials like peanut butter and canned tuna that would otherwise be unavailable. And this is where you come in!
Feeding Westchester would love to have you organize or participate in a food drive.
Food drives can take the form of traditional on-site events at your office, business or community location. In addition, we can help you create an online food and fund drive that allows people to conveniently donate.
